Aw, so Rammy’s second story was another Parable. This one from the 19 century French writer Guy de Maupassant. He is know for his twist endings and is an important part of literary history. Rammy loved the story, Anais and Gerald liked it, and despite her love of long sentences and dusty lit Maya hated it. Oh and if you want to see just how crazy this podcast can get… I suggest watching the end of the live video recording for Rammy’s precious “I’m waiting you to stop with the snarky comments.” lmao
